Accessible from the "Where To Buy DWN Trees" page, the Variety Finder now includes DWN's 34 types of multiple-budded fruit trees. Even more than something fun to show off, a multiple-budded fruit tree is an efficient way to increase crop diversity and length of harvest season in a backyard orchard. Use the Variety Finder to locate retail nursery sources for each multi-bud combination.
Keys to success with multiple-budded fruit trees: 1) as applies to all fruit trees, be sure your site is well-drained, 2) plant variety combinations adapted to your area, and 3) keep varieties in balance by regular pruning to prevent the most vigorous varieties from outgrowing and shading out the others.
Examples from the DWN Variety Finder: click on a multiple-budded peach below to see which retail nurseries are stocking it. Most of the multi-bud peaches will have three to five varieties, i.e. will be 3n1's, 4n1's or 5n1's, depending on bud take, growth, and retail nursery preference.
